Big well done to all our players and coaches who were on Gaynor Cup duty against North Tipperary at U12 and U14 level last weekend. Hannah Dobbyn was on duty with the u12s up in Birdhill while Molly Murphy,
Áine Connery and Stephanie Phelan were on U14 duty in the Villa along with club coaches Dee Travers, Richard Long and Derek Tebay.
Sunday was Gaynor Cup day for our girls and we had a big involvement across the 3 squads.
U12 saw Hannah Dobbyn involved, U14 saw Áine Connery, Molly Murphy and Stephanie Phelan with coaches Dee Travers and Richard Long and at U16 Emily Blackmore, Aoibhe Rees and Ella Brennan flew the flag.
Mixed bag of results but plenty experience gained by all 7 players and our coaching duo.
The new Schoolboys season is about to start and we already have a bit of good news we would like to share with all members and supporters which occurred recently.
One of our own schoolboy players has recently requested to sign for Waterford FC and last Sunday, Daniel Ponce de Leon starred in a mini tournament for them against Rangers of Northern Ireland, Bohemians Fc and Klub Kildare, delivering excellent performances.
All in Mooncoin Celtic are absolutely delighted for Daniel on making the step up to the higher level of underage football at League of Ireland level. His attitude, hard work and superb application to everything he does on and off the pitch has paid off and Daniel has a very very bright future ahead of him in the game.
Well done to all within the club who have helped Daniel along the way from academy level right up to his recent opportunity with Waterford FC.
We will be following Daniel very closely with Waterford Fc in the U14 season of 2023. Congratulations Daniel and the very best of luck young man.
Its a day of good vibes and good wishes and a delight to see so many Mooncoin players involved at a National level and in this case it’s the U16 Inter League Squad who are in a National Final on Sunday v Longford in Cahir.
Congratulations to our 3 young women, Ella Bailey, Sommer Grant and Emily Blackmore and the Waterford u16 Girls Development squad who travelled all the way to Donegal yesterday and snatched a 3-1 win to make to the Gaynor Shield Final on Saturday 25th June in University Of Limerick. Hotshot Emily Blackmore got on the scoresheet (again) and Ella and Sommer both got game time also.
